This Agent check monitors the availability and uptime of non-StackState StatsD servers. It also tracks the rate StatsD servers are receiving metrics.
This check does NOT forward application metrics from StatsD servers to StackState.
To configure the Agent to connect to StatsD, edit
/etc/sts-agent/conf.d/statsd.yaml. An example configuration can be found at statsd.yaml.example.
init_config: instances: - host: localhost port: 8126
HOST: Set the host name or ip address of the StatsD server being monitored.
PORT: The admin port of the StatsD server being monitored.
Execute the info command (
/etc/init.d/stackstate-agent info on *NIX) and verify that the integration check was successful.
